Shine, our annual pocket guide to all things Scottsdale, is out. And this year, local artist Luster Kaboom is taking readers on an illustrated ride through the city's best spots for food, drink, art, and entertainment.
Here, in no particular order, are the five best places to exercise in Scottsdale. To see what else made the list, check out the complete Shine guide.
Pure Barre The quest for a ballerina butt ends here, as intense classes blend Pilates, stretching, and ballet barre work to mold the ever-desirable dancer's bod.
Cholla Trail Known as Camelback's slightly easier trail, Cholla's a bit less steep than Echo Canyon Trail, but it requires some rock-scrambling before reaching the mountain's summit.
Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt One of the Valley's top recreation destinations, the 11-mile Greenbelt traverses Scottsdale gardens, parks, and golf courses. The trail runs north from Tempe Beach Park to McCormick Ranch.
Lululemon Lulu fangirls and guys can get their running tights fix and free flow yoga class every Sunday at the Scottsdale Quarter location.
Indian School Park & Tennis Center Tennis and basketball courts, a horseshoe pit, sand volleyball, two baseball fields, and a lake round out this rec center's many athletic offerings.
